Lusting for Covers (54)

Lusting for Covers is a weekly meme, held on Sunday, that allows bloggers to share their current cover obsession with fellow book lovers.

Here's what you do:

1- Take the graphic (left) to use on your post. Remember to give credit to the original host (TBQ).

2- Choose your own book cover that you've fallen in "lust" with in the past week. It can be new, old, a reprint, or even a book that is not yet out-- it's all up to you! If you find a cover that catches your eye, then showcase it on your blog, and let others see the pretty covers out there.

3- Copy the direct link to your own L4C post into the Mr. Linky widget at the bottom of this post (when in doubt, use this link and then scroll down to find  the current L4C post), and allow others to come and see what you picked!
4- (OPTIONAL): Besides posting the picture of the book cover you chose, it's nice to provide the book summary, title, author, or a website link for the book. It's not required, but it can help you readers' to add more books to their own list! A brief "Why I choose this cover" is also appreciated, but not required.

NOTE: PLEASE link back to my blog ( somewhere in your post, letting viewers know that it is my meme, not something you are trying to call your own. Failing to do so, with the intent of actually calling this your own work, will result in trouble! I hate threatening, but really, is it so hard to post a link that says "This meme is hosted by TBQ."? Link love is great, and actually quite easy-- please use it!


Here's my candidate for the week:

Darkest Highlander by Donna Grant
Series: The Dark Sword, 6
Publisher: St. Martin's Paperbacks (Jan. 31, 2012)
Summary (
In the acclaimed Dark Sword series, the darkest, fiercest warriors of Scottish legend finally meet their match—in the brave, fiery hearts of the women they cherish…

For years, Broc has watched over her, protected her—and hidden his love for her. But when his beautiful Sonya, finds herself in a hopeless situation, the Highlander flies to her side to save her. Unfortunately, before the Druidess can thank him, Broc is captured by his enemy and destined for eternal pain…

Sonya vows to help her noble warrior, though he is imprisoned in a mountain of pure evil—bound in chains of the darkest magic. With Sonya’s own magic fading, she must summon the greatest power of all to save the man she loves. But even if these two hearts are united, will they be strong enough to defeat the heart of darkness? Or will their undying love doom them for all eternity…?

I'm shooting with all of the above!!! =) Hey, ladies do you have any idea who that buff gorgeous body is on the cover? I do!!! ;) ;)

If you do not know the answer I think you would have a great time scrolling through theses covers to find out. =)

So, what do you think? He fits the bill and kilt out perfectly, right?! =)

Hi Christine!

All of the above is the perfect answer! :D Lol.

I didn't know who he was, but now I do--thanks for sharing that link! God, that man has been buuusssy! LOL.

I think I feel in love with all of the covers he's done--off to add them to my list of books. :D Yep, I'm a cover hussy bad. Don't even know what half of the books are about, but I'm willing to take a chance just based on the covers!

Thanks for stopping by!
